Last Night @ SMC - Sophomore outside hitter, Tamia Files, continues her resurgence after dealing with chronic shin splints since last spring and led the team in kills (12 total) to lead the Brahmas to a win over the Corsairs of Santa Monica College and open up the first round of the Western State Conference (South). For those of you who do not know, the WSC is split into three divisions this year: East, South, and North with 5 teams in each for a total of 15. Statewide standings can be found on the CCCAA website at: 2016 Women's Volleyball Standings - CCCAA
Although, it may look like the Brahmas committed a lot of errors (27 total), the majority were serving errors as we get our talented athletes to develop a point scoring mentality behind the service line. The scores of the games were: 25-12, 25-12, 25-14. The Brahmas outhit the Corsairs 35 to 8 kills. Sophomore opposite and team co-captain, Hayley Alvarez, had 5 kills (on 7 attempts) and led the team in aces with 5 total.
Up Next - We are hosting the Owls of Citrus College for a 6pm match tomorrow night (Oct. 21).
Pierce Volleyball Recruits Days - We have a few reply already and we are set to host them on either of the two dates we picked (Nov. 4 or 11) for all prospects/recruits to come for a visit and see what it's like to be a Brahma on the Women's Volleyball Team, do a quick tour of the campus, see our top class facilities, student athlete resource center, meet the coaches and players, and watch conference match. All you have to do is RSVP and let me know if you are coming (your family is welcome too.....no boyfriends). Please let me know about whether you can make one of the two dates listed below. If you are being recruited or simply showing interest in our program, then you will not truly understand what the program is all about until you visit and you experience our team culture for yourself.
